Cricket legend and India’s goodwill ambassador for Rio Games Sachin Tendulkar will be in city on Sunday to present the BMW cars to Olympic medallists – shuttler P V Sindhu and wrestler Sakshi Malik – and gymnast Dipa Karmakar for making the country proud. He will also present BMW cars to Sindhu’s coach Pullela Gopichand for producing two Olympic medallists – London Games bronze medallist Saina Nehwal and now Sindhu.

Tendulkar will present the cars at the Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy in Gachibowli in the presence of State Minister for IT K T Rama Rao. These cars are being sponsored by Hyderabad Badminton Association president V Chamundeswaranath. The news was earlier declared by Punnaiah Choudhary, secretary of Badminton Association of India (BAI) on August 22 in Rio.

Sachin had earlier presented a BMW car to Saina Nehwal in 2012 after winning a bronze in the London Olympics while he presented Maruti Swift to Sindhu for winning girls’ singles title in the Asian Youth Under-19 Championship.
